Emergency Eurasian Student Refuge Program

Bard College announces a scholarship program to support 40 Eurasian students who are displaced and unable to continue their education due to the Russian regime’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine and its impact on the region. The program is aimed at individuals from countries neighboring Ukraine who are affected by the war. It is designed primarily to allow students to begin or continue their undergraduate education. Students will be admitted to Bard College’s main campus in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, and its affiliates in New York City, Bard College Berlin, or Bard College at Simon’s Rock in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, and in select circumstances, other Bard-degree-granting institutions. This initiative is in addition to the Bard Emergency Ukrainian Student Refuge Program for students from Ukraine.
